Today, when we see a person taking money out from an ATM at street and, simply, put it into his/her wallet, we don't notice how much evolution is embedded in this ordinary and simple action. The technology has developed rapidly since the time of our parents and with it our perception of time.
Some time ago, to make a common financial operation you had to go to a bank branch and to talk to your account manager. For instance, a withdrawal could take hours and the bank clerk had to consult the bank files, including your balance.
The computing evolution brought us many facilities. The main examples are the ATM and the internet banking, that, currently, are accessible for everyone, everywhere. To use them you just must have a bank account, a bank card and a password. A whole operation takes only few minutes and through it you can make lots of operations like a withdrawal, pay bills, ask for a loan, transfer money, ask for a bigger line of credit or, simply, deposit a little quantity of money in your savings account. The internet banking follows the same way, however looking like a more professional tool, because it gives you the possibility to consult your investments in the stock exchange, verify the share prices, check your portfolio or complain of your financial advisor.
Thanks in advance!
